I am now a 13 months into dreads, and I have not used wax in 9 months. The people I went to continually told me i NEED to use wax, and even against whatI thought, I tried it. They messed up my hair so much I used to cry about how much wax was in it at night. After starting to use less, and eventually stopping and trying to get it all out after finding this website, I decided, since I could not get it out, that I was going to take them out. I then met someone who convinced me otherwise and started my dreads almost all over again naturally. Right away I could tell how much better my dreads were and how they actually tightened instead of just seeming like they were when they were really only held together by chunks of wax. My dreads are now 13 months along, wax free, and much, MUCH better than they would ever be using wax.
The beginning. With all the wax.
A couple monthes into it. This is when I began taking out the wax.
This is a couple of months ago, so not to recent. But I no longer feel wax residue and they are about wax free, and coming along much, much better, as you can see I don't do much to them at all. This is about 8 months into it. You can tell how much more locked they are then with the wax.
